A coalition to defend #ourNHS

Join Us

Health Campaigns Together is a broad campaigning coalition of trade unions and health campaigners, established in 2016.

All three major health unions are part of HCT, and we support them in their fight to win a fair pay deal for staff. We also have great support from non-health unions.

HCT and KONP played a key role in the establishment of the broad SOSNHS coalition launched in January 2022. This coalition now has the support of 55 organisations including 18 trade unions. The immediate demands of SOS NHS are: Emergency funding to save a struggling NHS; investment in a fully publicly owned NHS; and to pay staff properly - without fair pay, staffing shortages will cost lives.

SOS NHS gathered over 345,000 signatures on a petition early in 2022 demanding emergency funding for the NHS. It held a successful conference in November with speakers from several trade unions, and a national demonstration in London on March 11th.

We hope your branch and/or regional committee will wish to affiliate for 2023. Health Campaigns Together merged with Keep Our NHS Public in 2022 and continues to play a vital role within KONP in broadening the alliance and strengthening the work of KONP and HCT with trade unions.

Your affiliation to HCT now also brings with it the offer of a complimentary affiliation to KONP (unless you choose to opt out).

HCT holds affiliates meetings online, and our affiliates decide policies and campaigning priorities. We are only as strong as our affiliates. We value your support.
